Occupation* He was a judge.1 
Death*11 Jun 1754 He died at Montville, New London Co., Connecticut, on 11 Jun 1754.1,2 
Biography* Judge Otis’ residence at Scituate was on the south of Coleman’s Hill, the former residence of Gilbert Brooks, Esq. He held the office of Judge of the Court of Common Pleas for Plymouth Co. from 1703-1714. In 1709 the town of Scituate voted that ‘the Society empower Joseph Otis, Esq. to finish the meeting house by pewing it, and also to appoint two and two to a pew [when they do not agree to couple themselves], each couple paying the cost of building the pew.’ In 1710 he was elected under the governor’s order, representative to ‘the Great and General Court’, and again in 1713. He held other town offices. He moved to New London about 1721, where many of his relations and acquaintances lived, and bought of James Harris a tract of 650 acres of land ‘lying in the North parish in New London, adjoining a pond called Obplintksok,’ now Gardiner’s Lake, a mile or more in length. This land was purchased by Thomas Stanton, or Stonington, of Owaneco, 11 Nov 1698, and by him sold to Joseph Otis. He was received to the communion of the church at New London 19 Nov 1722.
     He was much in public employment, was Moderator of town meetings, on parish and church committees almost yearly, etc.
     From the records of Colchester, Conn. it appears that in 1724 he purchased of Capt. Samuel Gilbert a house and farm of 180 acres, lying in the east part of the town of Colchester, on the old country road for ‘770 pounds lawful money of New England.’ He is described in the deed, as of Scituate. This land Joseph deeded to his son Nathaniel in 1735, ‘for and in consideration of the love, good will and affection which I have for and do bear unto my beloved son, and is the whole of what I design my said son shall have of my estate’. The house erected on this land by Nathaniel, has been occupied successively by five generations.
     Judge Otis is spoken of by his contemporaries as a gentleman of great integrity, a judicious and useful citizen. The following portrait was written of him soon after his death ‘He was a Christian upon principle, a public spirited and useful man, distinguished by talents of the solid, judicious and useful, rather than of the brilliant and showy kind. He was of large stature, his countenance solemn and serene, frank and open in his manner, of ready wit and sound understanding. As a private individual he had the union of simple dignity and benevolent courtesy which marks the gentleman. He died universally lamented.’.2

Burial*1 Jun 1657 His body was interred on 1 Jun 1657 at First Parish Cemetery, Scituate, Plymouth Co., Massachusetts.1 
Biography* John was probably born in the old family home at Glastonbury, Somerset County, in 1581. The parish records of Glastonbury only commence in 1602, and there is no entry there of his baptism, although his children are later mentioned. As the earliest mention in the Glastonbury parish register of a baptism of his children was in 1604, it is reasonable to assume that he was married about 1603, when 22 years old. This was some twenty-five years before he left England, but beyond the fact that this wife's name was Margaret, that she came with her husband and their family to America and died either April 4, 1653, April 28, 1653 or Jan. 9, 1654 (all dates being mentioned), nothing is known.
     He was evidently a substantial yeoman, who, with the other Puritans of the time, left his home to escape the religious persecution of the times, coming to the Plymouth Colony (now Massachusetts), and willingly submitted to the hardships of a pioneer for such freedom.
     Tudor, in his life of James Otis, the patriot, says that John came from Hingham, in Norfolk, England; and it is a fact that most of the settlers of the New England town of this same name, to which John himself came, did originally live in that English town. Such being the case, combined with the statement of Tudor, who from his earlier date of writing may have had sources of information now unknown or destroyed, it has been conjectured that he left his native Glastonbury and lived for a time in Hingham, previous to embarking for America. If so, he did not leave until after his son John was born in 1621, as recorded in the parish baptisms.
     It is not known with certainty when he landed in America, or in whose company he came, but most probably the date was in the latter part of 1630. This was the year after the great charter was granted the colony by Charles I, and a generally more enlightened political action inaugurated by the English government. In fact, a distinguished historian writes that 'as soon as this liberal action was made known, emigration began on an extensive scale. In 1630, about three hundred of the best Puritan families in the kingdom came to New England; not adventurers, not vagabonds, were these brave people, but virtuous, well educated, courageous men and women, who, for the sake of conscience, left comfortable homes, with no expectation of returning.'
     At one time it was supposed that John arrived with the Rev. Peter Hobart in 1635, since the early searchers of the records found his name in that company when they drew lots on the 18th of September, 1635. It is evident, however, that he settled at Hingham at least as early as 1631, since in a division of lands in that town, a lot granted to him bears date June 1l, 1631, while the last of several grants is dated March 5, 1647 (Hingham records, Folio XII). Among the grants recorded are the following:--'June, 1635, John Otise is to have five acres of the medow called the Home Meadow next to the cove.' Vol. I, pg. 10.
     But to his descendants one of the most interesting of these grants was that of June 1, 1636, 'ten acres for planting ground' on a hill. 'The remembrance of the original Glastonbury home of John was most curiously kept alive and perpetuated by him in the quaint name he gave to this ground--Weary-All-Hill. Possibly its shape or location, or some other feature of his new possession, reminded him of one well-known and loved hill in his boyhood home, for its name certainly was no newly invented one, with a more local significance, as some historians would say, but assuredly goes back to England and to Glastonbury town.'
     This hill, which is 129 ft. high, is now bare, and generally would not be considered interesting, except for the view from its summit, which is however, certainly delightful. In the History of Hingham (Vol. I, page 177) the writer says, "We skirt the foot of Otis Hill--very steep upon its western slope--and from this cause, known to early settlers in their quaintly expressive nomenclature as Weary-All-Hill, the view from this hill is exquisite, lie at one's feet, and to the northeast and east is the deep blue expanse of the Ocean. Daniel Webster greatly admired Otis Hill, with its view, and often visited it on his way to Marshfield. It is said that he had a great desire to buy it, and make his home there, but feared that is was so near the city, he could not hope for the seclusion which a more distant spot would afford.'
     John appears to have been prominent among the Colonists, judging from the rather frequent appearance of his name and the events mentioned in its connection. According to the Plymouth Colony records, it appears that 'John Ottis' took the oath and was made a freeman of the Colony of Massachusetts Bay on March 3, 1635. His place of residence at Hingham was at Otis Hill, southwest of the harbor, being a beautiful slope of land, then covered by a heavy growth of forest trees. On March 15, 1646, his house was burned to the ground, 'being the Sabath day in the morning.' but it was soon rebuilt, and he continued to live here until the death of his wife...
     After his first wife's death, he moved shortly to Weymouth, where he married again, his bride being Elizabeth Streame, who, according to the Genealogical Dictionary of Rhode Island, died in 1676. He lived at Weymouth until the time of his death, May 31, 1657, which is recorded in Hobart's journal with the statement that he was seventy-six years old, thus corroborating the year of his birth as 1581. It appears that his wife, at the time of her marriage, was a widow with two children, Thomas and Benjamin Streame, and that she survived John at least several years; since five years later, on the death of the former son, she was appointed administratrix, as noted in the New England Gen. Reg., Vol. XI, pg. 173:--'Thomas Streame, 1st, July, 1662, power of administration of the estate of the late Thomas Streame of Weymouh, granted to Ottis, his mother, in behalf of her self and children; she bringing an inventory of that estate to the next Countie Court.' This inventory is then mentioned in the records of the following session of the court as 'Inventory of the estate of Eliz. Oates. Power of administration to one-third part of the Inventory, as the right of Benj. Stream, is granted to Eliz. Oates, formerly Streame, his mother, in behalf of herself and the children of the said Streame.' It is to be noticed that in these court records the name is spelled both Oates and Ottis, showing the uncertainty of the orthography of the name at that time.
     As stated above, he probably died at Weymouth, and according to Horatio N. Otis was also buried there, but he also states that while the old cemetery there (at North Weymouth or Weymouth Heights) indeed contains stones dated as far back as 1672 (although possibly erected by descendants some time after burials), yet there is, however, nothing in memory of John.
     In this connection it is interesting to call attention to a modern granite monument of this John Otis and certain of his descendants. This was erected probably about 1908, not at Weymouth, but in the Ancient Cemetery in Meeting House Lane, Scituate. The Monument stands about seven feet high.
     On one side is the inscription:
